If the 2019 edition of DWWA proves anything, it is that we can now say without any doubt that Chardonnay can ripen satisfactorily in the UK.  This still Chardonnay joins our two Chardonnay-based sparkling wines in the Best in Show line up with a wine which would surely show well against the Coteaux Champenois competition.  Very pale in colour, with creamy, linden-fresh scents and a bright, incisive, fresh and vivid palate, this is of course a far call from the generously ripe Chardonnays which often dominate the varietal market, but as a graceful, finely sculpted fine-dining white from a high-latitude, ultra-cool-climate site, it's almost shockingly successful.  Drink 2019-2025
